'Strictly Come Dancing': Ed Balls Vows Not To Pull A John Seargeant And Quit

He's assured his supporters he's not going anywhere.

Ed Balls has vowed to stick out ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, insisting he won’t leave the show until the public decides that it’s his turn to go.

Despite the fact that the former Labour MP is currently at the bottom of the leaderboard by quite a margin, he’s so far managed to avoid being in the dance-off since live shows began, due to the public’s support of him.

However, while broadcaster John Sergeant ultimately chose to walk from the show when he was in a similar position in 2008, Ed has insisted that he won’t be following suit.

While it’s fair to say that Ed isn’t the strongest dancer on this year’s ‘Strictly’ line-up, his determination has been well-received by viewers, and in the most recent live show, he and professional partner Katya Jones managed to bag their highest score to date.

See if he can stick it out for another week in Sunday’s (6 November) ‘Strictly’ results show, airing at 7.15pm on BBC One.
